Private Dinner with a Geisha
"This experience is a guided tour with a private dinner with one maiko. This is a truly private and authentic party arrangement with a privately arranged maiko for approximately two hours. This includes a guided tour and Japanese dinner course. You may choose from two options: a half Kaiseki course option in a room with others or a full Kaiseki cour or Kaiseki ryouri is a traditional multi-course Japanese dinner that came about originally when monks would ward off hunger with warm stones. Due to the half Kaiseki option being in a room shared with others voices from neighboring tables may be overheard. But there will still be one maiko with her undivided attention to the room.For the full Kaiseki course at the Japanese restaurant’s private room there will be one maiko there specifically for your room.Both half and full Kaiseki meal options will meet at 5pm at the Minamiza theater and will go on a guided tour of the geiko and maiko district. Then at around 6pm
